"Micro-dairy farming is 10 animals or less on a dairy farm. The concept is to keep your operation at a scale where you can sell all your milk directly to consumers and maintain control of your milk and its price." [02:00]

"The current [dairy] delivery system is largely obsolete, especially in these days when energy costs are so high. It deserves a re-think - we can make some improvements." [05:00]

"US Dairy farmers are extremely intelligent and efficient - they can produce a lot of milk for not much money and as a result the milk supply in this country is in a constant state of over supply." [28:00]

Andy Hatch is responsible for one of the most ubiquitous cheeses on counters and menus across the country - Pleasant Ridge Reserve. He's the guy behind Uplands Cheese Company, a seasonal grass-based dairy farm. Uplands is unique in a number of ways: it follows the "Alpine pattern" of milking, and its a place where cows harvest their own feed, spread their own manure, and give the farmer a bit of a break in the hard labor department. Tune into a conversational and candid episode of Cutting the Curd as host Greg Blais chats with Andy about everything from business growth to American cheese culture. This program was brought to you by The Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board.

"We're a Pleasant Ridge Reserve farm. Everything we do is geared around that grazing season and producing the most beautiful milk we can for that cheese." [21:00]
